Emotional Attachment To A House

By
Home Stager with Stage and Sell by Stacy, LLC

I am beginning to see a correlation between being a parent and staging a house.  As a mother of 2 children, I love them both equally.  However, my children do not require the same amount of attention each day.  Some days, my daughter, (Abby age 9 the Drama Queen) needs a crisis resolved.  The next day all is right with her world and my son (15 years old with a learner's permit) needs my wisdom. 

 Each time I stage a house, I go thru a creative process.  Some projects are complete within a day or two and I leave the house knowing I gave all I have to give to that house.  However, there is that one.  The one that has been on the market 8 months before the realtor/buildrer called you.  The one the builders just want to sell, sell now and quit worrying about it.  The one you as a stager really want to come thru for.  On Wednesday, I completed this stage.. On Thursday, I went back just to add one more prop to the guest bathroom.  On Friday, I returned to place an additional basket of towels in the master bath.  Today, I repainted old chairs to place on the front porch.  Tomorrow is the Open House.  It feels like one of my children's dance recitals, football game or school play.  I just want the house to go out there and do it's best.  Break A Leg House....

Val:  You nailed my sentiments.  It is so hard for me not to call the real estate agent weekly and ask if anyone saw the house this week.  And I want to know what they say.   Luckily, one of the realtors I work with has been great about giving me feedback. 

 

Jaynee:  Thanks for the shout out..

 

To all of my fellow stagers, I will toast you all with a glass of wine tonight.  May all our projects sell quickly.

Cheers,

Stacy

The house looks great and it is sooo true, this house becomes our baby. I spend more sleepless nights planning the design and then everything has to be perfect. I tweak until I can tweak no more. BUT AHHH When it sells it is GREAT...congrats
